Idea that Hernandez is Gary Lineker-style finisher is incorrect
'He misses a lot of goals'. This is from a MANU fan who watched most/all his games.

He's a good player, intelligent, very quick but he's not an Owen, Aguero, Rush etc finisher. Way people are talking seems if he's played central he'll enevitably get 20 goals a season.

He's no worse than Defoe who also misses a lot of chances but gets himself it scoring positions and more often than not at least hits the target.
You have to play to these players strengths though and put the ball in where they'll pick up scraps or be able to find space.
Lumping long balls forward isn't going to work we need a bit of vision and class to find their runs or put it in the right areas. I hope Noble and Arnautovic are going to be looking to do that today.

He's a Man U fan, he can't have watched him more than 5 times.

Right username for the gag though.

IOC - Think the same. Apart from goals I'm not sure what else he offers, yet I keep reading he's a very good player. Maybe I've missed it.

Re: Idea that Hernandez is Gary Lineker-style finisher is incorrect
I am curious what makes him a very good player if he is a not an exceptional finisher.

I have not seen any more than most but he tends not to create chances for himself and has rightly not been expected to do a lot of defensive work.

Stats can be stats. But goals per minutes is one that is hard to massage into what you want it to say (if enough minutes are looked at) and I think he is one top in that area in Premier League history.

He's a classic goal poacher, but is a decent player all round.

The last time we played Spurs we had Jonathan CALLERI playing up front
What did some fuckwit Man U fan think about that?

Re: Idea that Hernandez is Gary Lineker-style finisher is incorrect
I dont think he is 'the best finisher we've had in a long time'. He's a VERY good player and improves the team but i'd say Ayew, or Sakho, or Carrol are as good finishers - if you're just judging 'finishing'. This idea that if he was played central the team would 'inevitably' be improved isnt correct no matter how many Talksport pundits repeat the idea

Not read the comments, which are undoubtedly highlighting his deficiencies, but he is the best finisher we have had for a long, long time. Just need to make sure he spends most of his time in the box.

Yes, he's a in cutting left winger that scores hat-fulls of screamers from outside the area.

He must be, Bilic told me.

I didn't need a Manc to to tell me this,

Good striker, but he's never been world class like the aforementioned strikers, which is why he's playing for us.

Re: Idea that Hernandez is Gary Lineker-style finisher is incorrect
Sorry, but thats not right.

He is a natural born finisher, you only have to look at how quick his reflexes are on his 2nd Southampton goal.

He wont put a shift in, but he will score goals, even in a bang average side like us.

Re: Idea that Hernandez is Gary Lineker-style finisher is incorrect
I'd say linkekar missed his fair share of chances too. Most strikers do or they would bang in hatricks every week

Re: Idea that Hernandez is Gary Lineker-style finisher is incorrect
yep Bro-in-law - goes to most matches last 30 years - he DOESNT reckon Hernandez is a natural finisher the way the press/pundits are talking. He said he was good player but used to miss a fair share of chances.

He was suggesting ppl were overplaying his ability as an out-and-out goalscorer. just saying bcs i hadnt heard this before. And this is from someone who thinks hes a good player.

You got all this from 1 Man UTD fan?


If he "Inevitably" gets 20 goals this year ill be well happy with him.
